EGShares Declares Quarterly Distribution For Emerging Markets High Income/Low Beta Equity ETF

The Board of Emerging Global Advisors, provider of EGShares ETFs, declared today a quarterly distribution of 10.46 cents a share from its Emerging Markets High Income/Low Beta ETF. The fund is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that trades on NYSE Arca under the ticker symbol HILO.

The distribution will be paid on October 5 to shareholders of record on September 28. The ex-dividend date is September 26.

The distribution covers the initial seven weeks of the fund’s life. Few of the portfolio companies paid a dividend during the seven week period. The fund’s dividend is comprised of 37.7% dividends received proceeds and 62.3% return of capital 1. Emerging Global Advisors (EGA), the fund’s sub-advisor, views the high ratio of return of capital as a one-time event related to the start up timing of the fund. The dividend payout patterns of the companies in the portfolio seem to suggest that future fund dividends could have no material component of return of principle.
